Is It Permissible To Earn From Youtube Ads?
Aoa sir, I want to create a youtube channel for education and the education doesn’t contain anything haram however one major way to earn money from youtube is by allowing advertisement on the videos that we upload. When someone watches that ad or clicks on it, the advertiser pays money. Youtube gets 40% of that while the video uploader gets 60% of the revenue.
The problem is that even after telling youtube to filter certain ads that are explicitly haram such as ads whose subject is selling alcohol, black magic, promoting bad kind of movies and shows etc, the ads whose subject is halal are run however they may contain haram elements or there might still be explicitly haram ads that might run because we didn’t find the option to filter them out. Most of the ads’s subject is halal as far as I have seen but they may contain haram elements.
Is earning from youtube ads haram or halal then?
